Episode #38

In Carson,Esquinazi,News Corp.,Wal-Mart on May 18, 2012 by Howard@OpenAir Tagged: , , , , , ,

Tom and I talk about News Corp. and the arrest of Rebekah Brooks (and the lawyer who charges $4,700 per hour).  We talk about the Carson case and Judge Selna reassuring us that private means private.  We talk about Esquinazi and his appeal, including the effect of the dueling declarations.  Finally, we talk about Walmart, the expansion of the investigation, and how it’s bringing in more commentary than we’ve seen in the past.

Show Notes:

1:01: Takeaways from the ABA Panel with the SEC
4:42: News Corp.’s Brooks arrested
8:39: The $4,700 per hour lawyer?!
12:57: Judge Selna’s tentative Carson decision; what should the government have to search and disclose?
26:29: Esquinazi appeal
31:41: The dueling “declarations.” Is Haiti Teleco an instrumentality or not? Haiti says no. Wait, they say yes.
42:14 Walmart’s disclosure
43:34: The Donald comments
49:52: What’s coming up from Tom and Howard, including that we are going to be together at Compliance Week on a panel going over the recent case law and hot FCPA issues. Come to Compliance Week and see us.

Episode #20, and a Breakout on Contract Provisions

In Contract Provisions,Design Institutes,Esquinazi,Haiti Telecom,SciClone,TWIFCPAVideocast,Watts Water on October 26, 2011 by Howard@OpenAir Tagged: , , , , , ,

Tom and I are always looking for ways to improve the show.  One comment that we’ve gotten is that the length of the show makes it hard for some people to watch.  We’ve also gotten comments, however, that the show length is right on because it gives us time to really talk about the issues.  What we’re going to do to keep the discussion thorough, but help people who want to watch in chunks, is to put the start times of each piece of the discussion.  If a particular section interests you, skip to that section.  I’ll also put the total time for each segment, so you know before you start how long it is (in other words, I do the math for you).  I hope this helps keep this “work safe” and we hope you enjoy.

Show  Notes:

  1. Esquinazi Order (6 1/2 minutes): starts at 1:40
